The largest exhibition of Palestinian cultural heritage Palestine Expo was opened in London, despite the active protests of pro-Israeli groups of activists. It was planned that over the weekend it would be visited by more than 10 thousand people. It should be noted that this event was planned to be held last week, but because of numerous complaints from the Israelis, the British government had to postpone the event until all the circumstances were clarified. But in the end, nevertheless, the organizers gave permission to the exhibition.
The event itself takes place at the Queen Elizabeth II convention center in central London and includes art galleries, an introduction to Palestinian sights and a presentation of the national dishes of Palestine. The invited guests were journalist John Pilger, Israeli academician Ilan Pappet and writer Ben White.
"We are very pleased to see so many people ready to support the Palestinian people. And by such events we wanted to say to the whole world: we do not need charity, we need support," - says Palestinian Hayat Amos Zuhayer, one of the speakers of the event. At the same time, commenting on the attempts of pro-Israel activists to obstruct the exhibition, the speaker stated that "they simply do not want the truth."
